C.R.U.N.K. Academy

Artist: Drew Anderson

Type: Residencies


C.R.U.N.K. Academy is an intensive arts-integrated residency which utilizes performing arts (hip hop, parody, theatre, poetry, and comedy) to encourage self-expression, hone conflict resolution abilities, enhance public speaking and performance skills, and develop character. C.R.U.N.K. Academy can be themed around an academic unit or encompass themes that develop from the expressions, personalities, and unique talents of the students.

This residency can connect to any curriculum or calendar activity and is appropriate for all grades. It is also available as an extended after-school program, extracurricular arts activity, or character development elective. As such, it can be formatted to span a summer or semester-long program, or even an entire academic year.)


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

A kick-off assembly
A required orientation meeting and planning session
A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
A student culminating or sharing event
An evaluation meeting
For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
A set of workshops ($100 each)
A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
An evaluation meeting ($100)
Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
